I had a ton of fun making this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cake for Basil’s first birthday party this past weekend. I love all the 80’s comebacks!

I recently got hooked on the show, Master Chef Junior, where children 8-13 years old are challenged in a cooking competition. These kids are cooking up restaurant quality dishes like Seared Scallops, Chicken Liver Pate, Sriracha Foam and Fillet Mignon to perfection.
